"GenealogyBank's new search enhancements are excellent new tools to help genealogists fine tune their family research," reports Tom Kemp, Genealogy Director at NewsBank, inc. "We appreciate the feedback we receive on the site and often heard from users who wanted to search a specific newspaper by title or by city and narrow searches by type of article—for example, just birth notices or just marriage announcements. And now you can! We also added the ability to search only the most recently added content over the last one to three months. Researchers of any level can use these and other tools to hone in on hard-to-find family history information and document the lives and times of their American ancestors over four centuries."
Additionally, GenealogyBank recently added more than six million articles, documents and death records. The site's online family history archive now features more than 3,800 newspapers, including over 144 million fully searchable historical newspaper articles and 113 million obituaries and death records.
This month's release includes new and expanded information from big city dailies and regional weeklies from 22 states and more than 40 newspapers, including: New York Herald (NY), Norwich Republican (CT), Quincy Whig (IL), Oregonian (Portland,OR), Daily National Intelligencer (DC), Hispanic-American titles and many more.
